Stampin' Techniques

There is a great tool on the SU! website that highlights Stampin' Techniques to create simple, yet sensational, cards and projects. From using markers and pastels to watercoloring and from embossing to Two-Step Stampin', there's a lot to learn about creating handmade cards and scrapbook pages! Click on a technique listed to the left to learn how to create the look on your own projects.

One in technique particular is using Stampin' Pastels, one of my very first products I ordered prior to becoming a demo with SU! . . . I will feature it here, but suggest you take a look at all the techniques available to you, especially those of you who have not used any of these techniques or are new to SU! . . .

Just an fyi . . . I use my Stampin' Pastels with my versamark

Hope this helps!

The Holiday Extravaganza will focus on four main areas relevant to the holiday season: card making, decorating, gift giving, and packaging & tags. As a part of this Extravagaza, I am providing you with information to make the most of the holiday season. The links below will take you to information for some of these areas.

A Holiday Gift-Giving Guide:

Packaging/Tags: Do you remember looking under the Christmas tree during the holidays and seeing that one special package that you hoped was just for you? The one with the perfect wrapping paper, the bow tied just right, and the extra special tag? With so many perfect products for creating that beautifully-packaged gift, you won't need to go anywhere besides through me to wrap up your holidays this year!

SU! November Orders are on their way to me!!!

Hey girlies! Thanks for all the great comments about figuring out this Blog world. I am still working on it and hopefully it will be something fun for all of us to enjoy. I just wanted to thank you and to let you know that I rec'd an email today that our order is in the mail, so I am hoping for delivery to me by next Tues/Wed being the latest and then I will ship out to you the following day. With Veteran's Day yesterday, mail was not delivered so that was a day delay. I hope each of you enjoyed Veteran's Day and thanked a veteran for their service. If you do not know one, well didn't you know that you actually do . . . ME! LOL

Anyway, I am off to bed it has been a busy day and I am still dealing with a cough and not much of a voice. I hope you are having an awesome evening and had a super day! I will chat with you all soon. Take Care.
